Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 1-20-1970 'Love Scene' Jerry Garcia

i think i watched this film around 1985 or so, but the exact year escapes me, but really, it's beside the point; if you are like me, or like anyone trying discover the 'essence' of the preceding generations that spawned you, there is this fascination with what came before, an indefinable kernel that seems just within reach, but forever ungraspable; no matter what you read, no matter what you listen to; sadly, it is not possible, you either live it or you did not; for me, coming to age in the mid to late '70s, i was so struck and awed by the preceding generation of the '60s, i would yearn for some impression or definition that brought the whole picture home to me; it was small things, like my babysitter Karen showing up with this banana shaped radio, and the one image i have of her, besides her coolness, is that she would hook her thumbs into her jeans, and even at seven or eight years of age, i thought it so incredibly cool, i loved her; anyway, what i am trying to say, that for the past 25 plus years i have been trying to connect in some way with the '60s; perhaps it's a futile effort, perhaps it's nothing more than a silly diversion; but it's real, it persistently nags at the back of my mind, much in the same way that the Sinatra era does, the suave '40s & '50s, and the singular sounds that emanated from that gestation; oh, i don't know, i'm just hunting

try, Arb, to watch the flick "The Glenn Miller Story" with Jimmy Stewart playing a spot on version of Miller.

The point being, that swing (pre-be-bop) music (and of course, Sinatra was the king of the swing vocalists I guess) is really good.

thanks cream-puff, i'll hunt that bastard down if it's the last thing i do, because as they say, it ain't nothin' if it don't have that swing; Glenn Miller was a phenom that i was into long before Jerry hit the scene; voila!

I saw Zabriskie Point as part of an Italian Film course. I'm very impressed that Cream Puff War got a print from Antonioni!! I think the new version of the film out on DVD has the entire film as the director wanted it released. I recall being very surprised by the Garcia 'love theme" piece and am pretty sure the Dark Star snippet is the one from Live Dead.

Yes, the house blows up at the end of the film and I do believe to the music of Pink Floyd (Atom Heart Mother?). More is a completely different film with an entirely original score composed by Pink Floyd. The soundtrack is available as an album. I think Floyd were supposed to do a score for Zabriskie Point but they didn't get along with Antonioni or he changed his mind or drove them nuts by not making up his mind what he wanted . Anyway he ended up using other sources...can't quite remember.

priceless!

I totally concur, relate, copy that.

I too came of age in the '70s, and wanted to get a feel for the '60s I had missed, having been too young to runaway to the Hashbury or hang with the Angels with Kesey's pad down the Peninsula or jump on the Prankster's "Further" bus or cut school and go to the Human Be-In.

So when I saw a girl walking down Market St. in '69 with humongus bell bottoms - the bells were 4 feet wide or seemed like it - I fell in love!

Yep, Arb--just as CPW said...growing up in the Bay Area with two older brothers you describe my coming of age days as well. Hearing the DEAD from the parents car in GGPark as they let my brothers go for the day...and all that followed.

Have seen bits and pieces of the flick; have to keep an eye for it.

Thanks one and all above for the interesting comments; the forum lives again.
